John Gaudreau's mom wants him to stay at Boston College for his final season.

Gaudreau is the favorite to win the Hobey Baker Award that goes to college hockey's best player. The Flames are expected to offer the diminutive Gaudreau a contract once again but Gaudreau could choose to return to college hockey.

He has 35 goals and 75 points in 38 games this season and is expected to be a top six forward in the NHL when he makes it.

John Gaudreau has decided to stay in college for the 2013-14 campaign.

Gaudreau is a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award. He had an incredible 21 goals and 51 points in 35 NCAA contests this season. He's short by NHL standards at 5-foot-6, but his coach at Boston College, Jerry York, has high expectations for Gaudreau. "John has a great, great understanding of the game, in terms of all the chess matches going on out there. We talk as coaches about hockey sense and hockey IQ, and he really has that," York said. "He’s remarkable in that respect. He reminds me a bit of Brian Gionta when he was here, with the size. Brian was a little more feisty, but he has the same kind of grit that Brian has. He’s a competitor. Despite his stature, there’s no fear in his game."

We know what he’s capable of. I’ve been thrilled — especially after him getting cut last year and knowing how much that hurt him — that he’s been able to have so much personal success and, to this point, team success." Gaudreau is currently a sophomore at Boston College, and he has 23 points in 14 games. "Those are the kind of guys that succeed," Weisbrod said. "You take a guy with high skill, high hockey sense, then put it in a human being that loves the game to death ... these are the kind of results you get."
